Mixed with colorful WONKA NERDS and topped with skull and bone-shaped candies from WONKA Monster MIX UPS, these delicious cupcakes make a frightfully fun dessert.

  • 1 pkg. (18.25 oz.) yellow or vanilla cake mix

  • 1 container (16 oz.) prepared vanilla frosting
  • 24 NESTLÉ CRUNCH Fun-Size Candy Bars
  • 1 small tube decorator icing
  • 4 individual boxes WONKA SweeTARTS Skulls N' Bones from WONKA Monster MIX UPS assorted candy bag

    These fun cupcakes are fun to make. I some time use white chocolate frosting. It adds a little different flavor to the cupcakes.

    Unique and tasty!

    Amy Kelly from Lawrence, KS

    This recipe combines the best of many worlds: tastiness, a fun family activity, and a unique Halloween look. Whereas many recipes around Halloween go a bit overboard on trying to be gruesome in appearance, the Skull N'Bones Cupcakes provide plenty of Halloween details but still look extremely yummy! The recipes was very easy to follow and I couldn't be happier with the results!

    Good down to the bone

    Cortney Miller from Mechanicsburg, PA

    This was such a fun recipe to make, the little ones really enjoyed it, I wouldn't have second thoughts as to making this again, or passing along the recipe to others!!
